Charges for health centre services

Why charges vary

Seeing a doctor at our student health centres costs much less than other health centres. What you pay for appointments or other services differs depending on if you:

  • see a doctor or a nurse
  • are a casual patient, or if you are registered with the student health centre as your main healthcare provider through their Primary Health Organisation (PHO)
  • have a Community Services Card
  • are making an accident (ACC) claim.

If you're not enrolled with your campus health centre but hold a Community Services card, you will still receive a discount.

ACC charges are additional to charges to see a doctor or nurse, and will be added to the cost of your consultation.

If you're an international student, you pay higher charges and you must have medical insurance. 

Your Student Services Levy contributes some funding towards student health centre costs, which is why we can keep our charges down. 

Some charges are different at each campus. The reason is that each campus health centre is funded by a different regional Primary Health Organisation (PHO), which provide different levels of subsidies. 

Appointment charges

The charges in the these tables apply for all appointments, whether face-to-face, by video call or over the phone.
